Hanover’s M&A Opportunity Evaluation Solution identifies potential acquisition targets and conducts non-financial due diligence. Our 360 Assessment minimizes the risk that your deal is one of the 70% of all M&A deals that fail to realize value.

We help you answer key questions and develop strategies for success:

  • Which companies should we consider acquiring based on our objectives?
  • What non-financial red flags may impact a target company’s attractiveness?
  • What factors should I consider for successful and accelerated post-M&A integration?

A Word from One of Our Corporate Clients:

Sylvan is a huge company, but our headquarter operations are quite small – meaning we have to prioritize how to efficiently allocate our staff’s time. Having Hanover’s partnership gives us the best of both worlds, providing dedicated support that integrates research expertise with a comprehensive understanding of our business. This partnership gives us access to research experts without the overhead that often comes with external vendor contracts or with maintaining our own research department.
